"...you're Vichy French then?"

That really got my attention...can I play Rick to your Louie? Miss D can stand in as Ilsa no doubt, though some (JOTS?) might complain about Ingrid with a Welsh accent.

hey I don't believe even the vichy french would admit to any superiority of california vinos...not even in jest...and not even by beau geste...

though they seem to have had a taste for rieslings...

Yep...I have to agree.

But of course, I thought that this is what Mando had in mind for 19 November vis-a-vis France:

"By the Treaty of Toul, Frederick II, Duke of Hohenstaufen, King of Sicily, and King Philip II of France make an alliance against King John of England and the Holy Roman Emperor Otto IV."

--19 Nov 1212

there is nothing wrong with italian food. bad italian food is better than bad french food. I am familiar with Napa Valley wines though I can't say that I am familiar with their Spumante. I'll take your recommendation and try it when the opportunity arises.

I for one though swear by vintage champagne, to compare in a very bad way; if vintage champagen is coca cola, then non vintage champagne is Champion cola

Panache is shandy where I grew up in England we drank it all the time, it is good, and cold and very refreshng, you are right the quality of the ingredients is very important, in england we used best bitter, or india pale ale, and r whites or schweppes lemonade, usually half and half. From preference it was Courage Best Bitter, or Gales HSB. Though looking back polluting Gales HSB seems like sacrilige
